Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the most well-known grape in the world, and can be easily called the king of red grapes. Incidentally, it is a relatively young grape variety, and a product of crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 19th century in France. Cabernet Sauvignon provides quality tannins, great fruit and good acidity, and grows in a very diverse spectrum of climates. It is a small grape, very densely packed, and therefore has a rather high ratio of skins to juice, which provides its deep red color and higher concentration of tannins in wine. It is one of the main grapes grown in California and Bordeaux region in France, but it is also grown almost in any wine producing country in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon wine is very versatile, it can be consumed immediately or it can age very well for a number of years, developing new flavors and complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon can be pared with a variety of foods, including red meats, lamb, cheeses and chocolate truffles.
